We Came. We Saw. We Conquered.

For one last bit of fun in groups tonight, we had to complete a task of our choice. Our group (myself, Molly, and Stacy) decided to tackle to movie poster idea. Here’s our final products. Click on the pictures to enlarge them. The first poster was created by me. I wanted to convey the frustration […]

There’s Nothing Left to Say But Goodbye.

Well kids, the time has come for me to say goodbye to DS106. I’m really going to miss this class- it was definitely one of the funnest class I’ve ever taken. A final recap of the semester: Awesome Work: Everyone has put out some awesome work over the semester, here are some of my favorites. […]

Final Project: Chapter Six

Charlotte woke up in a sweat- she hadn’t dreamed the entire time they were in Cyprus, but last night the nightmare came back. Something was different this time though, after opening five or six doors- one of them actually led somewhere. She was lead into a room with warm light and pictures of Cooper all […]

Final Project: Chapter Five

Charlotte was surprised at how much she was really loving her time in Cyprus with the girls. She and Julia got along great together and were already becoming best friends in just a few days. Charlotte loved having someone she could talk to- it felt like she’d known Julia her entire life. As the cashier […]

Final Project: Chapter Four

A long, six-hour flight wasn’t exactly what Charlotte had expected when she agreed to go on vacation for the weekend with Annette and her friends, but they were finally back on the ground in Cyprus. She still wasn’t completely comfortable with Annette’s friends Aira, Eliisa, and Julia but Charlotte hoped that over the course of […]

Final Project: Chapter Three

Another day filled with cold and ice. It was so hard for Charlotte to have a cheery outlook on life when everything she saw was so bland and unanimated. Outside her window children were playing, laughing as they built a snowman and knocked him down together. It felt nice to hear some hint of happiness […]

Here’s my fanfic assignment. I had a lot of fun with it. Not sure if it counts, but I liked doing it.

Final Project: Chapter Two

It all started the previous summer, back when things were normal. Charlotte used to be a normal 23 year old- fun, vivacious, and carefree. She wasn’t a stickler for the rules but she never really got into trouble either. Charlotte was your typical young woman. That summer she had finally decided to take a vacation […]

Final Project: Chapter One

Here’s my first installment of my final project. The pictures used were for Daily Shoot assignments 448-454. All images were found on flickr with CC licensing. For image credits, mouse over the images for the poster’s Flickr name. Her alarm went off, startling her awake from the same dream once again. She’d been having it […]

And teeming with souls shall it ever be.

For your viewing pleasure: my mashup. I used the audio from the Boondock Saints trailer and mashed it with scenes from Edward Scissorhands. Overall the process was relatively painless (for a change )! I was finally able to get the Fastest Free Youtube Downloader to work and was able to easily rip the scenes from […]

Smash ‘em, Mash ‘em and Let Him Have It.

Working on my mashup assignment that’s due on Thursday. I’m working on doing a movie trailor mashup and I know I want to work with Boondock Saints in some form- either the video or the audio. I’m thinking about doing a mashup with a cartoon video and Boondock Saints audio. I’ve been busy with tests […]

To the Future of DS106: Rock On.

If you’re considering taking DS106 in the future, here’s some words of advice: First of all- I completely recommend the course. It’s a huge creative outlet and is a nice refreshing change from the standard courses offered at UMW. That’s not to say the course is easy at all, in fact it’s a huge challenge. […]

Final Project: A New Angle

I still really like my idea for the final project- but between working and classes it’s really hard to get the pictures done for the Daily Shoot assignments. I’ve decided to change from me taking the pictures to using the first picture posted on the Daily Shoot website for each assignment. At first I felt […]

Now when I get the sun, I smile.

Our big assignment this week for DS106 was to take one of our favorite movies and create a video essay for it. One of the hardest parts of this, for me at least, was to decide on which movie I wanted to provide commentary on. I finally decided to talk about Requiem for a Dream […]

Oh How I LOVE Technology! (Please Note the Sarcasm Here)

I’m trying to do my videoessay in a nonslacker/procrastinator way, but technology just isn’t working for me. I decided to use Requiem for a Dream for my movie and figured it’d be easy enough to get the scenes I want of the poor mother, Sara Goldfarb, off YouTube. Unfortunately all the “easy” downloaders aren’t working […]
